They're calling this the most brutal winter in the United States in 15 years. Let's hear from some of you guys who are living in a straw bale house.

Better than those in conventionally built homes - that is for sure. My SB is totally off the grid and heated by wood - it rarely gets below 77 F inside. I am in N.
